Sharon Van Etten releases her new album, Are We There, on May 27th on Jagjaguwar Records. She plays in Philly on June 18th at Union Transfer. Are We There is Sharon’s first new album since 2012’s Tramp, features guest contributions from Dave Hartley and Adam Granduciel from The War on Drugs, Jonathan Meiberg from Shearwater, Jana Hunter of Lower Dens, and Sharon’s band Heather Woods Broderick, Doug Keith and Zeke Hutchins. Soulful and sad, more slow burning than slow, the new song “Taking Chances” finds Van Etten sounding sharper and clearer than ever. Warm electric piano and echoey, plinky guitars open the song, then Van Etten takes over, her vocals ascending as the guitars get louder and she digs into the hooky melody. Below, download “Taking Chances.”
